@All.

Here, ONLY A will follow because we don't know anything about the past price of the product. It might be possible that the past price would have been decent still there were no sales. But reducing the price now, we cannot ascertain whether the sale will increase or not.

I think both of them follows as the company cannot sell its products without studying rival products. Increasing quality and decreasing price can help increasing sale.

The sale will increase if the quality is improved. So why not the 2nd option?

I think the option 2 is also valid.

Both the points are valid because if they would reduce the price and would improve the quality then its sail may rise again.

I think both the options are correct because the first company will examine and then reduce the prices.

No, only A is correct as we cannot determine what to increase or decrease either the price or the quality. To make a decision we must study the product market views. So A is correct.

The answer is correct because there is a possibility that sales has fallen because of no more need of the product, it is not always quality and price, need too must be checked!

I think both are correct because price and quality also matter a lot.
